There's blood on the sidewalk
bones behind the garbage
dogs to be your friend
dogs to rip your throat

in this lovely suburb
dogs fuck so shamelessly
you cannot pave a war path

and the catalogues are so faded
and the dinnerware is silver plated
and the parties were so debonair
and the bomb floated in the gutter

in a house with the frame
there’s a space where you build a fire
in a house with the frame
there’s a space where you build a fire

sunrise in bay window
sunset on the porch
bathroom for the rainy days
a spot to take defeat

and you ask an old man in the park
"what if my diction's wrong,
and what if I were to grow apart"
with a deep breath he says
"take these worries and shove them up your fantasy aircraft"(??)

"take these worries
and shove them up your fantasy aircraft"(??)

    General Commentokay, so theres a few things i might suggest but have no idea if i am right either?

    in the sloppy suburb,
    dogs fuck(fox?) and shed and sleep(sleet)
    ...
    you cannot pay for war path (beth)
    ...
    in a house with a frame
    ...
    a spot to take defeat
    ...
    "what if my dictions wrong? and what if i were to grow apart?"

    and i have no clue about the "does the air glow" part.
